On this date in our family history . . . the 16th day of July in the year 1896 . . . Katherine Elizabeth Waring died in Maryland . . . this "Kate Eliza" is a first cousin four times removed to the Keeper of this family history blog . . . 

On July 16, 1896, at Southampton, St. Mary's county, Md., KATE ELIZA, eldest daughter of Ann Maria and the late Dr. James Waring, and grand daughter of the late Gov. James Thomas. A noble woman, gifted with rare intellect cultivated by association and study -- a heart warm, tender, and true -- a spirit of self sacrifice that is learned only in treading the footsteps of Him she served so faithfully. The truest monument to her will be found in the memory of the many to whom her life was a benediction and a comfort. Saint Mary's Beacon, Leonard Town, Maryland, August 6th, 1896

1867 :: Death of Kitty Waring


On this date in our family history . . . the 12th day of July in the year 1867 . . . Catherine Ann "Kitty" Waring nee Waring dies at Southampton, home of her son, in St. Mary's County, Maryland . . . according to the DAR "Eye on Elegance" website . . . 

Catherine “Kitty” Waring lived in southern Prince George’s County and married her cousin Edward Gantt Waring before their move to Texas in 1840. In the 1850 slave census, three African-Americans, including two women, lived at the Waring farm [in Liberty County, Texas]. Perhaps they were there to help with the quilt a few years earlier. Edward died in [sic, i.e., before] 1850, and by 1860, Kitty had returned to Maryland.
  
Back in Maryland, Kitty would apparently live out her days in the Southampton home of her son, Dr. James Waring . . . 




This Kitty is a 4th great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog . . .
